Abrasive Wheels Awareness

Abrasive Wheels E-learning Course - Compass HSC - Lancashire Health and Safety Consultancy

This course is aimed at anyone who uses abrasive wheels or employs people who use abrasive wheels as part of their work.
There is a wide range of tools and processes that use abrasive wheels and ensuring these are used correctly and safely is of paramount importance.

Different wheels will have different properties and characteristics suitable for particular tasks. They also have different weaknesses and can pose different risks and hazards in handling and use. For this reason, it’s important that you always select the right abrasive wheel for the job and use it with the right machinery.
This course covers the anatomy of an abrasive wheel, the dangers associated with their use, storage and handling and much more.
